My DS started getting sick on thursday, and it every day it just seems to get worse. He has a really bad cough, he had a fever the first day but now it is gone, he will not eat and when he does eat he spits most of it up. He coughs so hard that twice now he has had projectile vomiting because of it. He is hardly wetting his diaper, which concerns me, but I have always heard that you should only take your child to the hospital if he hasn't had a wet diaper in six hours. Does this mean his 'normal' wet diaper, or just a wet diaper in general? Because I have been leaving his diaper on for four hour intervals so that I can see how much is in there, and there is barely enough to get it wet. He still has tears. He also has a runny nose. I took him to the doctor on Friday and he told me he had a gastrointestinal illness, which it clearly isn't and if it is, there is something else going on too. I just feel like my doctor will not listen to me, we are going back today and I am going to demand he do something about, because it cannot go on like this, I'm really worried he is only four months old, if this is the flu, it could get really dangerous. Does it sound like the flu?
**** DS was admitted to the hospital yesterday for bronchlitis and he tested positive for RSV, and he was sevrely dehydrated. He is doing well now, he is not dehydrated anymore due to the IV, but his RSV isnt doing any better with the breathing treatments. Also he cannot keep anything down after he eats because of the phlegm and his coughing really hard. We are staying at the hospital again tonight. Keep him in your prayers, that he recovers quickly and can come home soon.
